Christmas Quilt DONE!

Here is the magazine photo I saw last year that made me want to make this quilt in 2013. My plan was to make 3 blocks a month from January -July and have time to quilt it or get it quilted and bound before Christmas 2013. Ta-Da!
Here it is. Quilted, bound and washed. If you look close most of the blocks are a little different. That was not done on purpose! That's why my blog is called Humble Quilts. I couldn't make a perfect quilt if I tried.


Here's a close up. It is on my bed and it makes me smile every night that I crawl under.

Happy December!


I just found out and am editing this to let you know Wendy has made the Tiptoe thru the Tulips pattern available. You can get more info HERE- Legends & Lace.

  2. Looks perfect to me and I love it. Time to get out the Christmas winter quilts. For me all the decorating I really need is a beautiful tree and Christmas quilts throughout the house. The perfect decorating. Your quilt is an heirloom as are all of yours. Hugs

  4. I can see why sleeping under this quilt makes you smile. I love red and green quilts. The design left plenty of room for quilting and that is especially nice too. It will grace your bed for many, many holiday seasons.

  11. Absolutely beautiful and a perfect reproduction. Quilting is about the journey not perfection (for most of us).

  12. Very lovely. I like that you mixed up the blocks a bit, that keeps it from being static, and gives it a bit of a twinkle. I like how you set your goals, too. Makes even a big project more doable.

  15. WooHoo, Lori!! Goal accomplished! Must feel so good--especially to be snuggled under it.
    I think it is absolutely the best to have the blocks be a little randomly different. Therein lies the charm!

  21. Beautiful. Hubs always tells me that there is no such thing as a perfect quilt. A good motto to live by.

  22. The best quilts are the ones that make the person they belong to smile! Perfect or not!

  39. Hey Lori, What a beautiful, graphic quilt! I went back through some of your other Christmas posts too! You've got quite a collection of xmas quilts going on! I love the top / quilts in your last post. The 1776- 1876 quilt is a great inspiration. Actually the applique border reminds me a lot of Gwen Marston's applique borders?! I'm sad we can't get together this year for our mini retreat with Hannukah so early it really threw things off... Oh well hopefully next year. Have a wonderful holiday! cheers, CW

  46. no perfect quilts! good for you...me either....i wouldn't have it any other way...

  47. What a great quilt - I love that not every block is identical in colour arrangement. I think that it adds to the charm and beauty of your quilt. The red and green colours are so historic and the quilting just finishes it off perfectly! No wonder you smile every night when you curl up underneath it! I would too!

    ReplyDelete
  48. It's beautiful Lori! Sweet dreams!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love your quilt, its amazing!!! Congratulations on the finish.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I love the fact that your quilt has slightly different blocks. To me that's precisely what makes it precious. They show that your quilt is truly hand-made and unique, different from the one that inspired you, really your own. Congratulations, it's beautiful. I can imagine your joy every time you see it on your bed.

  51. Your Christmas quilt is just beautiful and I'm so inspired by how you made a reasonable monthly goal for piecing... and followed through. The quilting is so pretty too.

  52. Such a pretty Christmas quilt Lori! I always love peeking in at what you've been up to :)
